Wordpress Frameworks

Anyone use or have used any Wordpress frameworks? I'm thinking of getting Genesis ( the one at http://www.studiopress.com/ ), since a friend sent me a copy to play around with, and it looks pretty good.
I haven't really looked at others much but Thesis (http://diythemes.com) seems nice too.

What wordpress frameworks does everyone use, if any?

Frameworks are cool, but wordpress is not good enough when it comes to create websites anymore. Because of the plugins for security and stuff like that which are slowing down the system and the server as well. Not a bad idea to use, however like Genesis I'm against it.

@"Genesis" Thanks! I'll check those out.

@"iGdesigner" Yeah, I like plain HTML sites better for when I'm just making basic sites for me alone, but when I make them for others, it's nice to have something which lets them edit the content without needing to know how to code, so they don't need to ask me every time they need to update something.
What do you usually make sites in?

Plain HTML, because I can ;), I could never work ith wordpress really. I strugge to make my own templates even with those template buildiers with drop things on the screen. I prefer oldschool HTML way.

@"iGdesigner" So lucky! I wish I could get away with building everything in plain HTML. I still do a lot of coding with Wordpress templates, but it's not the same...

HTML is easy, I'm almost certain you'll ace it if you put your mind to it. It's the CMS that is a special art.

@"Yozora" Ofc with Wordpress is the same, you have to just learn the syntax which is hard for me. Other parts are HTML, JS and CSS, thats all. If I understood how to code to Wordpress I would code all the time, but there are no time to learn that ;) At the end Html is the best.

What? My reply didn't show up?
OK...Well, anyway, I guess I'm just nostalgic for plain HTML sites because I've been making them longer, and they don't need a database, so they're usually faster & less likely to have security issues. Wordpress is definitely powerful though. I've known how to make both plain HTML & Wordpress sites for a while now, I just prefer the latter, but usually work with the former nowadays. Both are good though.

If you have plan for long term to get visitor from mobile user I sugest to make a website with mobile framework. Android and apple was using framework for standart browser. You should not worried about it.

I have a website or two using the genesis framework. It's okay... Thought it would be better from everything I've read.

Really? What parts of it were disappointing? Since I'm considering getting it, it would be really useful to know it's faults. Is there anything you usually use instead?

I haven't played around with frameworks at all.

All I've really done is, make a website with it and change some settings/added themes and plugins to make it look pretty.

But that framework does look very nice!

Genesis is a really the top of the top when it comes to WordPress frameworks and extensions, because they have an excellent themes and plugins too. But if you are want to use the most of it you'll have to pay. But it is really one of the best investment you could do on Internet, especially because they sell they pro plus package (about 47 themes and plugins) one life time fee. Some of the most known WordPress sites like wpbeginner uses Genesis as they framework. But I would advise you to read this article first:
https://www.nutsandboltsmedia.com/things-you-should-know-before-you-purchase-the-genesis-framework/
Because if you are not too familar with CSS or PHP and want to change a lot of things on your Genesis theme, there could be a problem. Otherwise you don't have to know CSS or PHP, but you'll have to pay for everything. It is worth paying it, but it's a paying ...ha.
